About the Trust

Welcome to NUH

We're based in the heart of Nottingham and provide services to over 2.5 million residents of Nottingham and its surrounding communities. We also provide specialist services for a further 3-4 million people from across the region.

We're one of the largest employers in the region, employing around 15,000 people at QMC, Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House.

  • QMC is where our Emergency Department (A&E), major trauma centre and the Nottingham Children’s Hospital are located. The QMC is also home to The University of Nottingham’s School of Nursing and Medical School
  • Nottingham City Hospital is our planned care site, where our cancer centre, heart centre and stroke services are based
  • Ropewalk House is where we provide a range of outpatient services, including hearing services.

We have 90 wards and around 1,700 beds. 

Our achievements

We have a national and international reputation for many of our specialist services, including stroke, renal, neurosciences, cancer services and trauma.

We are at the forefront of many research programmes and new surgical procedures. In partnership with The University of Nottingham we host a Biomedical Research Centre carrying out vital research into hearing, digestive diseases, respiratory, musculoskeletal disease, mental health and imaging. 

As a teaching trust we have a strong relationship with our colleagues at The University of Nottingham and other universities across the East Midlands, including Loughborough University, where we are part of the Olympic Legacy project.

We play a vital role in the education and training of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.


DisabledGoNottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust works with DisabledGo to provide detailed information for all of our departments, wards and services at Nottingham City Hospital, Queen's Medical Centre and Ropewalk House. All the information included has been asked for by users of the DisabledGo website. It covers much more than just automatic doors and ramps, such as information on lighting, colour contrast, signage and background noise. Most importantly, all the details have been checked in person, so you can be sure you’ll get all the facts. For more information, please click here.
